- Crooked teeth
- Gapped teeth
- Bite misalignments (overbites, underbites, open bites, cross bites)
If your teen isn’t happy with his or her smile, we can create a customized treatment plan that helps them love their smile. Every teen deserves to feel confident!
how long does Invisalign take?
how does Invisalign for teens work?
Using iTero scanning technology, our orthodontists will make quick, precise 3-D impressions of your child’s teeth to begin the Invisalign process. These impressions will be used to create their custom treatment plan with Invisalign for teens.
Your teen will receive a set of custom aligners: one for their top teeth and one for their bottom teeth. Every 1 to 2 weeks, your teen will switch out his or her current set of aligners to wear a new set, and every 10 to 12 weeks, you’ll visit our office to receive new sets of aligners.
Each set of Invisalign Teen aligners is custom-made to shift teeth closer to the ideal alignment. Your teen will wear aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours a day.
With every new set of aligners, your teen is one step closer to a beautiful, healthy smile!
